Wont have constant power unless its running ,,,, when you first turn on ign it cuts in for a few seconds to prime the fuel system and then only runs constantly when engine starts,,, if its not doing this it could be a faulty relay or a crank sensor

Does the fuel system operate off the battery and how will i know if its the battery or the fuel pump

Does the starter spin the engine normally when you turn the key to the start position ? Do the headlamps shine bright ? If any of these work correctlly the battery is fine . If the engine turns over normally an doesn't start an run it doesn't mean the fuel pump is bad either .There could be any number of thing's wrong , testing first electrical circuits of igintion system , fuel system . Hooking up a fuel pump pressure gauge , pull a plug wire an check for spark . I'd say your best bet would be to take your to a qualified repair shop before you replace parts you don't need .

2000 chev silverado stopped running

Then your problem is electrical,make a tool if you replaced the relay open the cover of that relay,there you will expose the mechanical contact of the relay stick it back in its socket trun the key on and make the relay make contact the fuelpump should go on.If it does the problem will reside in the ignition switch electrical,if it doesnt check the ECM bat fuse.should be 20 amps.

Fuel Pump 2000 Bravada changed but still not working... help!!!!!!

You check the relay?Make a tool out of the relay take the relay apart collapse make full contact and stick it back in,key does the fuel pump come on?If yes keep it like this for 15 minutes if the vehicle stall,the problem is not the fuel pump, The ECM must see a RPM of 250 or more in order to turn the fuel pump on. If it doesnt see a RPM of a 250 it doesnt even know its running.Okay back to the tool you made,This only trouble shoot the fuel pump system

Will not start. can use starter fluid and will run a few seconds. doesnt sound like fuel pump working. could this just be a fuse?

check your user manuel to see if this has an electric fuel pump
if it has electric fuel pump it could be a fuse
to check if fuel pump is working, disconect a fuel line on the motor
crank engine
if fuel spurts out the pump is working
could also check to see if there is fuel filter that is clogged

No fuel getting to throttle body / installed new fuel pump and filter / gas is in line but will not come out when turned over

are you geting power to the fuel pump?? On some vehicles the electric fuel pump primes when the ignition is switched on to acc (i.e when all the dash lights come on etc) and on other vehicles the fuel pump doesnt start untill you turn the ignition over to the "start" position. Id check the fuel pump was acutally getting power and go from there

92 ford explorer (crank but no start and no noise from fuel pump)

Probably, also, if it's an electric, check to make sure the pump is actually getting power. The wires may have gone bad.
